Victorian Liverpool was an international port and the second city of the British Empire; it also had a notorious reputation as being a place of violence and crime. Archer explores the historical basis of that reputation; how the city was policed; and the reality of crime - as committed by men, women or juveniles - in Liverpool between 1850 and 1900.
